Our Vision

Engaging the disengaged.


What is the difference in your life in terms of motivation and achievement?

What is the key distinction that we need to make in order to finally move forward with our lives, past the blocks, the blame and the rationalisations?

In short - the key is responsibility.

Wouldn’t it be great if we could find a way or system that would help us to decide once and for all what absolutely has to be done and to take 100% responsibility, without any excuses for getting it realised?

Here at GOALS UK we understand that difficulty and we are the experts at helping people push past the barriers that stop them achieving their full potential.

In fact many GOALS participants smash through their previous barriers and create extraordinary results. Results that move them from where they may have been for years into a compelling and exciting future.

How does the magic work?

It has been estimated that a third of the UK population struggles with low self-esteem and we are mindful that this struggle is often the cause of many people’s inability to move forward. Its is a problem for many adults in society but equally, low self-esteem can manifest itself in the form of disengagement from school or college; in drug or alcohol abuse, homelessness, criminality or a host of other presenting problems.

Poor self-esteem is found where there is an ‘entitlement culture’ among the young or where people’s confidence has been gradually eroded over time and they fall victim to destructive behaviour and habits, leading to self-harm, depression, eating disorders or anti-social/criminal behaviour.

A GOALS programme tackles these issues and behaviours by encouraging participants to discover where they have been holding themselves back and what they are holding on to from their past, which may be preventing them form taking the next step in their lives. By challenging how people think, feel and behave, we are able to encourage some of the most resistant clients to build not only self-esteem but resilience in the face of obstacles. As a result, we give them more of what they want and less of what they don’t want in their lives.

We want this for you too.

GOALS UK is a company on a mission: not only do we allow top performers to move up their career ladders but as a community interest company (CIC), we make it our business to give back and to search for the hidden potential in some of the most vulnerable members of society. With over 25 years of experience, we have worked successfully with over 200,000 people from all sectors of society, engaging the disengaged and giving GOALS participants the confidence and independence that they need in order to make positive and lasting changes in their lives.

We have, for example empowered homeless people to get themselves off the streets and into work and helped ex-offenders to transform their lives and create their own businesses and helped young people back into education and into work. We work with underachieving school pupils whilst we also energise and inspire their teachers, using the same approach.

Back to responsibility:

The two day GOALS programme delivers where other programmes may only scratch the surface because it based on bringing both yourself and your clients face to face with a better future and showing you EXACTLY how to mould that vision into a dream outcome, with NO EXCUSES.

This is a life-changing and positive experience - it is based on solid principles and techniques, taken from a variety of sources: CBT, NLP, Positive Psychology, motivational interviewing and advanced goal setting, amongst others - all encapsulated in TEN KEYS, which unlock our personal potential and propel participants into the next stage of their development. It is a process which includes training and coaching in order to ensure that the insights gained during the programme become embedded in concrete action, going forward.

And it gets better:
GOALS is replicable and scalable - it is a programme that YOU can deliver.

You can take the GOALS course and, in addition you can deliver the course yourself and create predictable and reliable change in any client group of your choosing. That is why the Department for Work and Pensions, numerous government contractors, schools, colleges and businesses all have decided to take the next step with us and train their staff to deliver this life-changing course. Our clients find that the GOALS process is invaluable for engaging clients with low aspirations and who may display a lack of engagement in general.

Many of our most successful facilitators are people who, after attending a GOALS course, have not only seen the potential for applying the course principles in their lives but have recognised that this unique set of tools can enable them to powerfully impact the lives of others and decided to come on board.

Whichever path you choose to take. We look forward to working with you.is
